Love you Jim,

I will miss you so very much, you have always been there for me. You're the best big brother I could possibly have.
It's hard to put all the reasons why I loved you so very much in words.

You will always be in my heart💕

Jim would play games with his kid sister and me. And he’d join forces with his sister to beat me at Monopoly! I remember that Jim was a warm, gentle man with a great sense of humor. He loved his family and above all his husband, Ray. He will be missed very much. My deepest love and sympathy goes out to Ray and Kathleen, and to all who knew Jim.
